sorry for the big delay ,

It was caused by a low oil level.

I had a low oil level alarm 2 weeks later and filled the engine up again and everthing was perfect

, I have to get my car to service today because of 30.000km and i will tell the that my car uses a lot of oil (4.5 liter per 30.000km (in 11months of driving)

Wow, that’s a lot of oil, it’ll need more than a service I’m afraid.
What engine do you have, petrol/diesel?
Good luck

I have a new T-roc - four months old 1690 miles on clock - thumping noise at low gears - apparently a 'characteristic' of the model. It is driving me mad! Kangarooing has been dealt with this week and squeeking steering column result of Air bag collar issue ( now resolved. BUT knocking noise is consistent and persistent. Anyone else with this issue ?

Hi fbox, welcome to the forum
You say kangarooing has been dealt with this week ? How ? Please give details of your problem, how long you suffered and what they did to fix it.
See thread on the subject and have you completed Impala’s survey ?
